Red Elephant kratom is named after the large size of its leaves. Most users describe the strain as moderately sedating and somewhat euphoric. In moderate doses (2.5-5g), it may provide a sense of relaxation and elevate one’s mood.
Red Elephant’s effects profile seems to be balanced. Some users have reported that the strain is simultaneously relaxing, energetic, and pain-relieving. These characteristics might make Red Elephant ideal for beginners or daytime use. That said, Red Elephant’s pain-relieving potential seems limited compared to strains like Red Bali and Red Borneo.
Red Elephant may have an above-average duration, with effects lasting about ~3.5-4 hours at moderate doses. It doesn’t appear to be more or less nauseating than other strains based on current evidence.
